Pat,

Nick, a friend of his and I had tough sledding until this afternoon. Nick ran into a big-time school of pannies and we commenced to having a blast.

On a side note, I have to laugh every time I see the word "striper" used in place of white bass. Just for the record, there are no stripers in deez' parts.

Did a lot better than me! After the sun went away I think the bite was gone, where I was at anyways. Collectively we missed a couple & marked many. Got some nice windburn outta the deal.

marbles I was out there Thursday a.m. and the ice was 2ft. + everywhere I drilled. It was my first time on the lake so I was a bit nervous too until I started drilling. I saw you heading out this a.m. Otter. Was wondering how you did. Sounds like you had some fun. It was pretty slow for me on Thursday.

I was there but didn't see the pros. Lost a nice pike in the morning and found some gills in the afternoon to save the day.

luckycrank, I thought I saw your truck today, I almost said something to TO but I wasn't sure!

As stated before the ice is in great shape for driving and the snow cover is being knocked down with the warm weather.

When the sun is out think "shaded" areas of the lake, we found the most active fish to be under the deepest snow banks.

Whole lot of nothing for us. Worked Crams, the E end, and the main basin "villages" with nothing to show for it. Out before sunrise and off the lake at 11 a.m. Family down from the cities and I thought at the very least I could fall back on the white bass bite. Nothing.

Saw a perm with a door ripped off though, any stories behind that?

Also check the point directly north of the access in 25-27 fow

real close to the break line

I found they wanted to chase, ratheer than eat.

when they gang up on your jig with out eating it lift it about 2 feet and jiggle your bait real fast and they'll pound it. (assuming you have electronics).

      I started using a chain hoist like this 2 years ago. Much easier for one or two people than a rope block & tackle. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004PX1F9S/ref=psdc_511406_t1_B009F257DE?th=1

      I thought I read some where Cliff mentioned 66-67 over the weekend and it'll start to slide now with cooler temps.
    • Sculpin
      Although not level related, can someone tell me what the current water temps are in the main lake, Big Bay  Cliff ? I am coming for a week a the end of the month. Thanks very much

      Really, do you think it will handle 19 Bucks? 🙄    😅
    • ozzie
      rayguy how has the fishing been the last week?  I know the weather hasn't been  ideal but hopefully you have been out.  I won't be up this weekend but will be back up next Thursday to catch the Vikes game at a local watering hole and then fish most all day Friday and Saturday.  Hoping to get another report from you closer to Thursday next week also! 😁
    • eyeguy 54
      click hereSuper-Handy Heavy-Duty 4,000 LB Capacity Rope Hoist look at it on amazon. 19 bucks. I bought one about 10 years ago and love it. I can raise a big deer by myself with this one. So glad I bought it since I do the butchering. I raise them up, tie legs off to rafter with a rope so it doesnt spin and skin away. 
    • walros
      Any thoughts about stocking perch of other forage base in this water to keep the walleye from canabalizing the younger year classes?

      Tough day of fishing for this guy today, ended up with about dozen eyes kept a limit of 13.75"-18"ers... I must have drove around for 2 hours before I even wet a line...Pretty sure I zippered every rock reef in big bay and to the east... I finally found some fish in a 30+ foot hole next to a sand hump... I found my best spot a couple hours before I planned on taking off (of course it was .5 mile from the access) 21-24ft sand/rock transition right by an island. I was surprised with how many people were out for a weekday in the fall.

      I was just telling my wife how I used to look forward to your detailed reports on here from my dads account on the way to the cabin years back, then I switched over to YouTube to enjoy Casey Sunsdahls updates. If I have time before we come up on our spring trips I will even go deep diving years back that have the same ice out dates to try to gain more insight on new locations to try. Sure miss your reports and hope you and yours find some luck. I will report Monday with our findings as we are also forced to come earlier than we would like, hope we can help narrow the search for Waldo! PikeMaster
